9:15am
i believe this team is bigger than one guy. sure it's going to hurt we're not going to have our ace down the stretch. but this pitching staff has proven it's more than strasburg. they can go three or four deep. >> i'm in the minority. as a fan, i think it will be frustrating that you have a healthy pitcher in strasburg who has really shown no signs of this injury or anything. throwing as fast as he has all season. been as successful all season. and ge one, say they get to the world series, not going to have your horse, frustrating. >> even without strasburg they'll enter without four of the top pitchers. pretty impressive. >> bats are turning around. >> their bats are really on fire. >> i can see where they're coming from. who knows how much -- and there's no right or wrong answer. but they want to fortify their
9:16am
future with this guy. one way of doing it. who knows, if they win the world series with these guys, we don't talk about it. if they get bounced in the first round against cardinals or braves, another huge issue. >> they did the same thing with jordan zimmerman last year and nobody had a problem with it. why have a problem now? >> because they're in the hunt now. >> yeah. >> i want to tell all the people out there now, show up to games. it's embarrassing. i wasn't there last night, but i watched and nobody is in the stands. this team has a chance to win the championship and d.c. is starving for championships. >> how about this, how about you going to a game? >> i said that. >> one game for a bachelor party. [ everyone talking at once ] >> what's that? >> we need the upfront seats. >> yeah, we need your seats. >> i don't have those seats. part of the problem, the people who sit behind home plate, they
9:17am
get to go up to the president's club, so half the time they're not there. they need to sit in the seats. >> sounds like you've been there before. >> why has it taken this turn? this is why you guys weren't on for three months. >> hey, nothing like a free cocktail at the baseball game. of course you want those seats. >> let's talk about the redskins. i've been saying all summer, we have to manage our expectations. it's what i still believe. it's going to be a very tough, you know, i don't think they're going to win sunday. i hope they do. that's a tough thing to go into saints' territory. what do you think? >> particularly with the saints coming off the sanctions and feeling lick it's us against -- like it's us against the world. if you want to be optimistic, the last time we played them, lost in overtime -- >> you love bringing that up. >> it's a game we should have won. >> it's history. >> in a perfect world we can compete with this team. >> i think you have that game in an internal loop. >> far from perfect.

9:30am
and widespread precipitation as well. be very aware if you're planning anything outside. here's a look at future cast which wants to bring a shower this afternoon. for the most part, should be dry. saturday, this line of storms very strong is expected to push into the afternoon hours and it's not going to be out of here until overnight into sunday before we start to see drier conditions. behind it, nice ridge of high pressure and we'll have a nice sunday. in the meantime, storm prediction center has us under a slight risk of severe weather for saturday. you can see the whole area up the mid-atlantic that is affected. definitely pay attention if you're doing anything outside on saturday. for today, then, 90 degrees. it will be hot, mostly sunny. less humidity than yesterday. overnight low about 74 under partly cloudy skies with light winds. here's a look at your accu weather seven-day forecast, once we get past that very active day on saturday, we have
9:31am
huge improvements for you. drop in humidity, and cooler, drier air moving in. our temperatures will drop. sunshine straight across the board. not too hard to take at all. a very nice day on sunday. if you have anything you want to do, that's the day to do it on the weekend. let's check in now with tony and allison. thank you very much. we have some skyfox is tracking breaking news now. a rescue happening on sugar loaf mountain in northern montgomery county. we understand a person was found unconscious and inside a large bin at the vineyard, that was around 8:45 this morning. we are told they have life- threatening injuries and are being medevaced to a trauma center. if we get more information, we'll bring that to you.
9:32am
♪ tell me something good ♪ no graphic this week? >> that's it. that was your graphic. >> thank you, tony. that music means one, it's friday, and secondly, it's time for ask allison. today's question deals with drama. a viewer writes, why do most women prefer drama in a relationship and say it keeps the relationship from becoming boring? with drama, the viewer writes, you may say things that in the heat of anger you can never take back. why say something to hurt the one you say you "love"? all right. thank you, easterns, for that big banner. thank you, easterns, our friend over there. viewers writing in all the time, and viewer, we thank you for that one. i can tell you this is a gentleman. i guess you got that from this question, who wrote in. i don't know the specifics of his love life. but it sounds like he is the nice guy in some of the schemes out there and dare i say, has been on the receiving end of the relationship talk which
9:33am
ends like, hey, it's not you, it's me, and you're really a nice guy, you're a great catch. if you've heard these things you might be a nice guy and might be tired of it. it's not your imagination. i have heard it 100 times myself. it goes like, i like a guy with a little edge. or he's too soft for me. and there is the old nice guys finish last syndrome. i know it is very real, but dear viewer, do not be discouraged. i understand the attraction of the bad boy. the image is everywhere in our society. we're going to show you clips from a popular show, like everybody was watching "sex in the city." it's popular, this bad boy image in literature, film, and yes on tv. who didn't root for carrie and big to get together? for her to tame that bad boy. it is pure drama. wildly popular drama. there is something exciting about being with a guy
9:34am
perceived to be edgy and a lot of cool. it's good for a while. but i would caution women that these bad boys don't always magically become like mr. big and doesn't always end in a wedding ring if that's what you want or a long-term relationship or a life partner. in your e-mail, viewer, you asked why do women like drama? your feeling is they think it keeps things from getting stale. that is crazy talk. if you are finding yourself involved with this type of woman over and over again, then you are yourself attracted to that bad girl image that's out there. you want to run far away from these drama queens and do it right now. any lady who wants that drama is dealing, dare i say, with some unresolved issues she is bringing into her relationships. in this case, no, it's not you. it is her. believe it when she says that. fighting, saying hurtful things, looking for drama,
9:35am
trying to pick fights, all that nonsense, it's not healthy. you do not need it. let me end by saying that i personally run from drama. i don't believe in saying things in the heat of anger and then it magically goes away after the fight. you treat people how you want to be treated, period, no excuses, in relationships, in life, work place, all of that. my friend, i assure you there are good women out there, i was one of them when i was out there dating and all that. those good women, if they're smart, they'll look for that good man in the end. nice guys don't always finish last. my husband of 12 years is now today and has always been a super nice guy, no drama. don't stand for that drama. it's a bunch of pahooey. if you have a question you would like answered, head to myfoxdc.com, click on the morning tab for a link to ask allison. i try to do this -- well, i do this every friday, like it or not, and we like all those hard questions. it's a simple question, but it
9:36am
is hard. we know they're out there. he's too soft for me. >> or drama in general. there are certain relationships where it seems like it's always going on. >> right. it's unhealthy and those are issues that those people individually bring. i would say it's not 50/50 and 100% and 100% for a lasting relationship. nobody completes you. you are completed. >> very good. thank you. >> i'm being serious. >> me, too. >> you complete me, that's it. >> thank you, and you me in this professional setting. one of comedy's power couples is calling it quits. we're going to tell you who next. >> find out who stole the show and who took home top honors at last night's mtv video music awards. the buzz bin. >> the middle guy, why doesn't he comb his hair? >> it is combed.
